Are thigh lifts usually done with liposuction?

Thigh Lifts and Liposuction

You're afraid of liposuction. Don't fear the reaper, er, doctor. Liposuction can get rid of the excess fat on your outer and medial thighs. The medial thigh lift is, simply, the inner thigh lift, one of the most popular procedures in the US, since thigh lift surgery can help contour and sculpt your hips in addition to your thighs. Why should you have liposuction and thigh lift surgery? While liposuction removes the fat, an inner thigh lift tautens the skin so you don't have turkey wobbly folds on your thighs.

That said, liposuction works best if you have reasonably taut skin, since liposuction can loosen already droopy skin. Combine a surgical thigh lift with liposuction. This may extend your recovery period, and you'll require a hospital stay. Scarring and incisions are usually minimal, but some people have greater risk of scarring, especially women. Scarring is more extensive if you have no fat deposits, so non-surgical thigh lifts such as mesotherapy are good choices rather than liposuction and an inner thigh lift. Don't fear liposuction. With a skilled surgeon, you'll have the thigh makeover you've always wanted.
